Bombay v/s Banglore

Though I dont agree with much of this mail but it has many point worth pondering, definitlely created with a Banglore bias.

2. Mumbai has highest number of illegal bootleggers in Asia, protected by police.

5. Mumbai has many private colleges, run by politicians to make fortune (not teaching), by asking lakhs of rupees from poor and middle class students for admission.

8. Mumbai University has dubious reputation of corrupt practices in teaching, administration and examination. A few of the vice chancellors were caught in the past for such practices.

    "Bangalore is famous for THREE: Software Professionals, Girls and Dogs."Girls!? Gimme a break! The guy who wrote the comparision, seems to havemisunderstood the origins of the name 'Silicon Valley'. Bangalore girlshave no class, as compared to Bombay girls.

    you know, many of these "facts" in the list are totally incorrect. for instance, there are close to 50 colleges in bangalore, not 21. and as far as i know, there is only one engineering college affiliated to the Bangalore University, which is UVCE. Most are affiliated to the Visvesvaraya Technological University. The list just reads like some made up numbers to me.btw, i'm a bangalorean who's been living in bombay for the last six months and i love it here. then again, i love bangalore too. i just think the two cities are too different to be compared.

    Bangalore sucks… Plain and simple

    Well, Bangalore doesn't suck, it's just different and so is Mumbai (I prefer that instead of Bombay). Basically the people in Bangalore are slow, smart yes, but slow. I know this for a fact because I stayed there. The people in Mumbai are street smart, which makes them smarter than the people in Bangalore, because they aren't lazy and don't have a laid back attitude which makes a big difference. I'm quite sure it's because of the lifestyle in Mumbai.Oh and I think that one of the only reason why Bangalore has a lot of software companies there might be that Bangalore has cheaper space than Mumbai. Mainly because it isn't overcrowded, and basically gives the companies more space and keeps their reputation high. And yes I do believe that the facts are totally incorrect and my guess is that it was simply made up.

    Bootleggers are actually needed in a city. They do a great service to people.
